A cultivation-independent approach based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified partial small subunit rRNA genes and genetic profiling by single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) was used to characterize the bacterial diversity inhabiting the rhizosphere of maize plants grown on an agricultural field. The community structures of two cultivars, a genetically engineered and a nonengineered variety, different herbicide regimes and soil tillage were compared with each other at two… CONTINUE READING
